Our friend and colleague Edgar is resident in Ponta Delgada and manages the day to day events including welcoming guests, cleaning the cottage, and dealing with any requests. He speaks Portuguese, English, Spanish and some French. He was born in Sao Miguel and works in a hotel so is very knowledgeable about what tourists want to do and see.
The cottage is wonderful and in a perfect location. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute of it! Highly recommend staying here.
The cottage is charming and a perfect place to call home while visiting Sao Miguel. It has easy access to all of the island's must see sights. While at "home" in the cottage, you can just step outside the back door to find majestic cliffs, crashing surf, wildflowers. The backyard has a table for dining near the house itself and out at the end of the yard there is a large stone table for dining right on top of the cliffs. This location is truly stunning.
Two bathrooms, washer/dryer, fully applianced kitchen and comfortable beds, too! Lots of island information, books, brochures, are provided.
Communication was very easy with a dashcam video for directions to the house from the airport. Edgar, met us early to give us a key and then worked hard to get the house cleaned for us in record time. He is very kind and helpful. Our welcome included a delicious bottle of wine and fresh fruit.
Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We plan to return in the summer of 2016!
Cute cottage by the ocean! Edgar was very understanding when it took us longer than expected to drive to the cottage. Everything was clean and the wifi was great. There's a rope swing in the backyard and you can walk out onto the cliffs from the the yard. You can hear the roar of the waves from the house. Stayed there with two of my girlfriends, and we loved it!
John & Tiffany's cottage was fantastic in many ways. The local caretaker, Edgar, was very accommodating. He helped us secure a car rental ahead of time, and even drove us to the rental facility in Ponta Delgada. He was in touch with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was going smoothly.
The home was better than I imagined it would be. Tall ceilings, a fully functional kitchen, comfy living room, and a large dining room table around which we spent many nights playing cards. The backyard was also fantastic - there was a table with chairs near the house, and astounding views of the ocean and cliffs. We spent many hours out there.
My only piece of advice is: ask for the wifi password before you arrive! We enjoyed being offline, but ultimately needed the internet to plan our daily excursions.
Beautiful house. Amazing view. Listing description was very accurate. Received a very helpful video of the drive to the house. Edgar showed us around the house and provided information about nearby restaurants and local sites.
The description was great and matched the house perfectly. As the first time that I have used a site like airbnb, I wasn't sure what to expect but the end result was so much better than I ever could've hoped for. The house was adorable and the pictures displayed it perfectly. The cliff and views absolutely make the house so perfect and it was just the right distance away from Ponta Delgada! There were tons of options of ways to walk in the Sao Vicente area and we found the best pizza place down by the natural pool. Parking was easy because it was at the end of a street and being able to be away from the crazy streets of downtown was perfect for what we were looking for. Even better was having Edgar as a local contact before and during the trip and for directions to the house. His resources were great help. Can't wait to go back!
La maison correspond bien aux photos, la cuisine est très bien équipée, la maison grande. Je recommande cet hébergement.
Une excellente location dans laquelle nous avons passé 5 jours formidables ! La maison est superbe et parfaitement équipée. Un grand merci à John et Tiffany pour leur accueil. Eliott, Jeremie et Amandine
